Those have black ranks and stripes - don't ever recall seeing those - first set I had were dark brown, now they're a lighter sandy colour. Are you sure NELSON SCS have not got any? All the SRs on my course got theirs...
:afro: I rang the MOD operator and they gave me the number, also got sent some desert ROYAL NAVY badges. Spoke to fleet a few months ago and our RN Tactical Recognition Flashes should be issued soon.
Sorry mate on leave all week so nowhere near a pussers (well crabfat) phone. :afro:
erm..going slightly off topic, does anyone know where I would be able to get black and gold embroidered LT's epaulettes? I know they were done in the past and that someone has managed to get a fresh batch (I think it was on 815) Any chance of passing ont he details?
UPDATE: I phoned Nelson today and they will only issue them to their OPTAG-ee's as they are on contract with a local tailor. Bicester are apparently sorting it out in the next 6 weeks, I have NATO numbers for them now.
JFH, if you have some spare CPO's ones lying around........ :thumright:
no change there then Daz, if you want something from G10 go and buy it or nick it as it will be in better condition and you will get it a danm sight quicker, i still remember the saga of no flack jackets to fit everyone, oh well you will have to have a small and make do. good to see the front line has all the support it needs
